The Great Vigil of Easter
We're headed to Christ Church in New Haven for our Easter Vigil this year.
Come experience a traditional Easter vigil with all the fixings: a paschal fire, some readings in the darkness, baptism, beautiful music and a blazing welcome to Easter and Christ's resurrection when the bells ring.
The vigil is the Episcopal version of a very ancient Orthodox tradition - the precursor of sunrise services. It begins in the dark with a single candle lit from the paschal fire. By the end the lights are ablaze and Easter has arrived.
